Answer :

let the age of son be x, so age of mother is x + 25

After 8 years, gather e of son is x + 8 and age of mother is x + 25 + 8


So according to give conditions


Now solving the equation


Multiplying both sides by



Multiplying both sides by 4(x + 25 + 8)


9(x + 8) = 4(x + 33)


Expanding the equation


9x + 72 = 4x + 132


Adding – 4x – 72 on both sides


5x = 60


Dividing by 10 on both sides


x = 12


So, age of son is 12 years
